Thank you again SO much Jess! I have said it a million times and yet it never seems to be enough to express my gratitude. You are such an amazing person through and through. You touch peoples lives in ways you cannot imagine. This is just another seemingly logical step on your path in life. This workshop was such a wonderful way to take a step back from the chaos of life, enjoy some time with inspirational people, gain the confidence to capture those small amazing moments we sometimes forget exist among the chatter, and walk away feeling ready to take on a new journey. I hope more and more women will take the opportunity to do the same. Congratulations Jess on your 1st workshop! p.s. you have a great assistant too!

Oh my GOODNESS! What a wonderful party! Love your attention to detail – and of course, it’s all beautifully photographed. Zach is a very lucky boy!

Oh man, time flies!! Happy birthday Zach! 😀 Love the series of photos, especially the one of him drooling. My 3 month old niece has just started drooling and it’s hilarious looking at her photos! Love the party theme and all the little details as well!


Thank you for sharing Zach’s first birthday party!! You did an awesome job with the party and photos. Love everything about it!!


Lovely post 🙂
Looks like an amazing birthday party, great job! I love all the images but the one of him on the train with you and he is waving is adorable!!


Happy 1st Birthday Zach! Time goes by so fast when you have something to gauge it by. Your years now consist of realizing you forgot how old you were but MUST be old because your son is 5, 10, 15, 20 years old. Enjoy every moment. Love you all <3


Wow! Such a sweet read Jess, and I love how you captured this special day in your blog. He will love to read thru this one day…which won’t be too far down the road. Looks like you all had a blast and I’m so glad he enjoyed his big FIRST birthday.


Oh my……. can’t believe a year has gone by! So sad that I have not yet met little mister in person :o( but I feel like I know him so well with all the photos and posts!!! One of these days soon I hope……. sooooo Happy Birthday little Zach! You are a very lucky child to have such wonderful parents and a very loving BIG family! May life be ever special for you! xoxo

thank you so much everyone for the wonderful and sweet comments! you all are awesome 🙂 love you guys and thanks for loving my little man! xo jess

OMG!!! JESS!!! These are amazing! So full of love but laughter as well!!! Soooo Matt and Tiera! I love how, in some pics, he is serious and she is being goofy and then it switches! I love the snowball in the face pic!!! Ohhhhh I wish I could have seen what happened after that moment! And then the very last pic, after the snowball, they are so very serious. Tiera looks like she is doing a photo shoot for a magazine, totally in character in that pic! Matt too! They are so very comfortable and at ease in front of the camera, geez….I wonder why! 😉 What a fun time you all must have had! Love is a crazy thing! So wonderful that they are so happy! Matt has grown into an amazing man! As all 3 of you Angel kids have grown right before my eyes and each and everyone of you are so precious to me and I am proud of you all!! I miss you all being little but so excited for this chapter in your lives, love, marriage, babies! Great pics! I love them! And I love you!


Oh how much fun! Great pictures and Jess all the funny things you mentioned about Matt I so can invision……. been there and done that, that is the perk of being your next door neighbors for so long…… yes I remember a naked little Matt T.M.I. I remember holding him in the hospital the day he was born and thinking “This one is going to be special” or totally spoiled with two sisters! hehehe I have not had a chance to meet Tiera as yet but they do make such a beautiful couple….. here’s hoping!!!!! As always…….. you and I assume youe hubby?? did a FANTASTIC job on the photo shoot! Love ya
